Ferrol to Santiago de Compostela

Overview

The Camino Inglés, or the English Way, was historically used by pilgrims from Ireland and England and is considered one of the lesser-known but highly rewarding routes among the Camino de Santiago trails, as it is less crowded than others.

The route begins in the northern city of Ferrol and stretches over 119 kilometers, passing through beautiful rural landscapes, serene forests, and charming towns like Betanzos and Pontedeume. Despite its relative brevity, the Camino Inglés provides a more essential and intimate walking experience, filled with especially warm hospitality from the locals of the Galicia region.

The Camino Inglés offers a wonderful opportunity for those eager to experience the spiritual and cultural richness of the Camino de Santiago trails in a relatively short time.
